On 20 March, Xiaomi took the wraps off their Rs 5,999 Redmi 4A smartphone. Based on a 5-inch HD screen (720×1280), a Quad-core 1.4GHz 64-bit processor based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 platform, an Adreno 308 GPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage, it’s a balanced blend of features and performance that is rare to find in its particular price range. However its 3,120mAH battery is the kicker — power that the company claims is good for seven days of standby time. The new MIUI 8 also has the unique ability to maintain two separate accounts of popular apps on the same phone, including Facebook, WhatsApp etc.
The phone will be going on sale today on Amazon India and on the Mi India store at noon, along with a range of accessories. This includes original cases for the phone starting from Rs 349, a deal with Idea Cellular where a subscriber can get 28GB of 4G data and unlimited calls with the purchase of this phone, and a Rs 200 promotion credit for Kindle ebooks using the Android app on the phone.
Also on offer is an additional 10 per cent cashback on IndusInd Bank credit and debit cards, where only one phone is allowed per card, and the entire amount needs to be paid during the purchase process. It is also valid when choosing the ‘Card payment on delivery’ option, subject to the PoS machine working at the time.
